Every day in Southern California, thousands of immigrant day laborers find work on street corners toiling for builders, gardeners and other contractors. Many of the workers, at one time or another, have been cheated by an unscrupulous employer. Almost always, the laborers keep silent. They are reluctant to seek justice in a country they feel isn't theirs. Painfully, they write off their losses and return to the street corners the next day to try again.
